Kalaa Utsavam - Indian Festival of ...
“…I spent the entire day on the terrace of a café in a little square watching life pass by; the hustle and bustle, the milling of tourists, natives and workers. And none of the people knew anything of each other...” – Peter Handke, 1992Have you ever watched strangers on the street and wondered what their lives might be like? What are the stories behind their actions and movements? And how might you be connected to them in this great big world?In 1992, experimental Austrian dramatist Peter Handke (Offending the Audience, Wings of Desire) premiered The Hour We Knew Nothing of Each Other, a one-act wordless play about the things that happen in a day at an unspecified town square. The 105-minute piece, which consisted of 450 characters played by 27 actors doing absurd actions and movements, was a phenomelogical exercise in the first-person experience: people-watching.In Raka Maitra’s latest production, the dancer-choreographer takes inspiration from Handke’s landmark work to the railway platform, melding dance and theatre into a series of wordless movements based on everyday gestures, filled with strong imagery and fleeting glimpses of stories.Described by Dance Europe as “without doubt a dancer of the 21st century”, Maitra defies the conventional dichotomy of classical and contemporary with her expansion of new vocabularies and contexts of odissi. A disciple of odissi dancer Madhavi Mudgal, she was awarded the Shringarmani, a national level award for odissi. Several of Maitra’s recent works were inspired by Indian writers and poets.About CHOWK Productions and Raka MaitraFounded in 2007 by Raka Maitra, CHOWK creates artistic productions, engages in research and provides dance classes. Its vision is to be recognised internationally for creating dance that moves and speaks without borders. The company’s artistic productions include full-length contemporary dance works that have been commissioned by local theatres and festivals in Singapore, which have toured internationally. Maitra’s dance language draws from the martial arts and classical Indian dance. From 2007-2011, Maitra was an associate artist with The Substation.

Coming Together to Sing with Vienna...
Don’t miss the exciting grand finale and celebration concert to the week long SVBC week in Singapore where audiences, conductors and music teachers get to interact with the world famous choir in various activities in Singapore centered on these main themes: See, Sing, Study and Socialise with the Vienna Boys Choir. The choir will be joined on stage by the kids’ philharmonic@sg Orchestra in the second half of the concert. Maestro Luiz de Godoy will conduct both the choir and orchestra. Godoy is the 2016 recipient of the Erwin Ortner Prize for Choral Music.The Vienna Boys Choir has been singing at Vienna's Imperial Chapel since 1296. In 1498, Maximilian I (HRR) moved his court to Vienna, lock, stock, and choir, thus founding the “Hofmusikkapelle” (Chapel Imperial), and the Vienna Boys Choir. Over the centuries, the Viennese Court attracted great musicians like Isaac, de Monte, Fux, Caldara, Gluck, Salieri, Mozart, and Bruckner; Joseph Haydn, Michael Haydn, and Franz Schubert were themselves choir boys. Until 1918, the boys sang exclusively for the court. In the 1920s, the choir was reestablished as a private organisation. Professor Gerald Wirth is the its Artistic Director, and its president.Today, there are 100 choristers between the ages of nine and fourteen, divided into four touring choirs. Each choir spends nine to eleven weeks of the academic year on tour. Together, the choirs give around 300 concerts each year, attended by almost half a million spectators around the world. The choir regularly tours Europe, Asia and Australia, and the Americas.The choir’s repertoire includes everything from medieval to contemporary music. Motets and lieder form the core of the touring repertoire, as do the choir’s own arrangements of Viennese music. The choir also performs children’s operas and world music.The Vienna Boys Choir performs with major orchestras, such as the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, the Staatskapelle Berlin, the Oslo Philharmonic, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, conducted by world famous conductors.You can find out more about SVBC week at www.svbc.sg regarding master classes and other activities.
